Tigers tune for tonight’s showdown

Tonight's the night when Greater Spokane League girls basketball unbeatens Lewis and Clark and Mead go for undisputed first place. LC shook off Central Valley's upset bid with a 20-0 run in the second quarter Wednesday and Mead topped Gonzaga Prep to set up the showdown. 

The Bears did a great job in transition to neutralize LC's full-court pressing style and led 16-14 early in the second quarter of their game. But then Tiger substitutions began to take a toll. Jeneva Anderson showed why she's UW-bound, keeping her team in the game by scoring nine of 11 points. But it was a pair of youngsters, freshman Devyn Galland and sophomore Hayley Hendricksen who were difference makers during the run that stretched LC's lead to 34-16. Hendrickse' hit back-to-back 3-pointers to put the team up by 10. Galland was active inside and hit four free throws. Anderson added two more baskets and the game was well in hand.
